melissa Staff asked 2 years ago

I have a 1000 square feet older home. It has light brown shingles. It was build in the mid 70’s. We added a covered porch and it was in bad shape on the outside. I painted it a light green color and now I need some suggestions on what to paint the trim, porches and concrete foundation. I need curb appeal and I am also open to changing the house color.

Trim: White… Foundation: Gray… Porch: White…

I would get rid of the gray. A light tan for the body, creamy white for the trim (can also match the windows if these are factory painted or vinyl) and a earthy olive green as an accent. This would go well with the roof.

* Foundation should match the siding color.
* Porch floor/stairs can be the accent or match the siding color.
* Handrails should match the trim.
